Moinhos Velhos is a secluded valley near the Barragem da Bravura. It is close to Lagos, on the Algarve coast in Portugal. Algarve is a well-known region of Portugal with a laid back lifestyle. The western Algarve is perfect to unwind and recharge with some deserved rest and recuperation, explore the fantastic culture, and unspoiled countryside that still retains its natural charm.

Traveling just half an hour from either the south or west coast up through the countryside to the Monchique mountain at 1000 meters, the whole area is speckled with small villages and towns with one foot in the past. Away from the popular tourist areas, Moinhos Velhos lays on 16 hectares (40 acres) in an area of several thousand hectares of natural beauty. It is a protected area where you will wake up to the songs of the birds in the morning, and retire with the silence of the stars at night.
